    Multiple File Uploads: Ability to set a minimum number of files that should be uploaded.

    Asked by oomsousa2 on September 09, 2016 at 12:29 PM

    Hi,

    Regarding your "photo upload form", is there a way to define a fixed number of photos for users to upload? (ex: users must upload exactly 10 photos).

    Thank you

    Nuno

    You can set a limit on the number of files allowed in the File Upload field. Here's a guide:

    1. Select the File Upload field and then click the gear/options icon.

    2. Go to the "Multiple" tab and turn on the "Limit Number of Files". After that, you can set a value on the next field to restrict how many files are allowed.

    You can also create multiple File Upload fields and then set it as required.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    We do not have the option to set a minimum amount of files that should be uploaded. What you can do, is to add 10 individual single upload fields, and set them as required, in that way you will ensure that the user must upload exactly 10 photos, see my example here: https://form.jotform.co/50676459127867

    Thank you David, that is indeed a good idea. Still, we would rather have the minimum amount option. Can we pay an extra for jotform team to add this feature?

    Is it possible for users to edit the code script?

    Best,
    Nuno

    We can create a feature request ticket if you like. However, we can't provide a turn around time when will this be available.

    Yes, you can download the form's full source code and then upload it in your server. Here's a guide: How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form.

    Let us know if you want to submit a request ticket. Thank you.

    Unfortunately, we can't provide any time frame when will this be available or implemented. However, I can see that this is already assigned to one our developers. We'll let you know once there is an update regarding this.

    Thank you for your patience.
